The Unsinkable Molly Morgan
Today's Gulfstream Park feature is a secondary allowances for filllies and mares, 3 & up, going a flat mile. No search warrants are needed to find the fastest filly, that's the surface-loving Todd Pletcher-trained favorite Shared Heart (2-1) that has won fresh, raced well at the trip, and working well for her return. The red flag for us here is that she went to the sidelines after adding front bandages for her two most recent starts.
Conversely, Dale Romans Molly Morgan (4-1) ships in sharp from Churchill Downs and has earned her best figures lifetime while racing a mile around a single turn, today's conditions. Shackleford's partner Jesus Castanon gets the call for the filly's third start off the layup and should make good use of his mount's tactical speed and kick.
Taking Molly Morgan to win at 3-1 or greater and key boxing her first and second in multiples with the favorite, undefeated Sisterly Love (3-1), and adding price shot Gob Smacked (15-1) to the exotics mix.
